I did it.? I made it through the hour long interview about “Cool Bloggers” on The Jerry Bovino Show, without getting sick or passing out. I must be maturing as Aspen Real Life grows up.
Sandwiched in-between Jerry Bovino and Michael Conniff, previous owner and talk show host on Con Games and current owner of Aspen Post, I was amazed to find that I could actually be informative about Social Media.
Two days later an 8.9 earthquake occurred in Japan and I was reading Twitter and clicking on real life accounts and journalistic stories of what was happening, before I read about it in the New York Times. And now, through Social Media, I am seeing ways that I can be involved and help. It’s expedient and it’s real and we don’t have to suffer through annoying fluffy media.
The below video states that Social Media is not a fad and is our biggest shift since the Industrial Revolution. Interesting included statistics:
- 1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. have met via Social Media
- Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the U.S.
- Social Media has overtaken pornography as the #1 activity on the web.
I guarantee you will gasp when you read the other stats, especially how many years it has taken Social Media to reach 50 million people.
Oh, and a huge thank you for liking my Aspen Real Life Facebook Page. Get connected and have fun over there and meet an incredibly vibrant community. It’s people making things happen!!
